Dodge is introducing the 2012 Avenger SE V6 today as a class leader in power output, providing both performance and affordability for driving enthusiasts.

The heart of the 2012 Dodge Avenger SE V6 is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 mated to an automatic six-speed transmission. The Ward’s “10 Best Engines” honoree delivers 283-hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque while also achieving a 4-cylinder-like 29 mpg highway fuel economy rating. Likewise, the Avenger SE V6 starts at a 4-cylinder-like price tag– only $21,495.

According to Dodge President and CEO Reid Bigland, “The Dodge Avenger is one of the fastest growing mid-size cars in America, with sales up 112 percent this year. We’re building off this momentum with the introduction of the new SE V6 package, delivering a true no compromise solution of the mid-size car buyer — 283 best-in-class horsepower, 29 mpg highway, 18-inch wheels and a rear spoiler- all for just $21,495 MSRP. You get the power, the efficiency, the look, and tremendous value that is unmatched in the segment.”

Other standard equipment offered in the Avenger SE V6 include electronic stability control with traction control and electronic roll mitigation, multi-stage driver and front passenger air-bags, side-curtain and front seat-mounted side airbags, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio and cruise controls, outside temperature display, LED taillamps, and premium interior with soft-touch surfaces. All this comes with a five-year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
